Book TINKER MOBILE!

Let Tinker help celebrate your next event! We are thrilled to launch TINKER MOBILE--pop up kids art stations ready to make your next party, celebration, or event fun and memorable for everyone! Many details go into planning awesome parties, events, and celebrations. Don't forget about the kids! TINKER MOBILE offers curated art stations for kids of all ages to enjoy during your event (+ happy kids = happy parents!).

How it works

First, decide if you want 60 or 90 minutes of art stations at your event. Next, select from our Menu of art station options. You may choose to have just one art station (only available for 1 hour of TINKER MOBILE), two art stations, or three art stations at your event. That's it! We will show up at your event with enough materials to make 30 projects at each station, facilitate fantastic art making, and take care of all the set up and clean up!

Bubble Wands + Bubble Blowing

The perfect fit for any celebration or festive event—our DIY bubble wands + bubble blowing station is always a hit! The best part—blowing bubbles is an excellent activity to continue throughout the party. Our most popular station, for a really good reason!

Mini Mosaics

Using a white air dry clay, students will push a variety of special objects into their clay to create beautiful mini mosaics. We’ll add a small wire hanger so that your mini mosaic will be ready to hang on the wall once dry!

DIY Stamp Set.jpg

Stamp Making & Banner Printing

Make your own foam stamps! After cutting and drawing into foam and mounting the stamp on a foam core board backing, kids will love trying out their brand new stamps to make a fabric banner. Stamps will be taken home and can be used again and again! (Optional add on: include a 2.25”x1.25” child safe, washable inkpad in black for each child to take home for +$2.70/each.)

Ribbon & Tulle Hand Kites

These fun, beautiful pieces are a hit with all ages. After learning to tie a half hitch, children can add ribbons and tulle to their wooden ring, and then have fun flying it around or dancing with their brand new hand kite!

Mini Canvas Art Bags 

This station is a fantastic addition to any event as children will each make their very own Art Bag to collect the rest of their artwork and add more supplies to! Using sharpies, kids are invited to add designs, details, and draw pictures on their bags. This project is best suited for a slightly older group as sharpies will stain.

Tinker_Mobile_Wire_Sculptures.jpg

Wire Sculptures

Another one of our most popular project stations—boys and girls, young and old all love making wire sculptures! Using wax based modeling clay, a foam core board base, and colorful wire—this project is incredibly engaging, and even fun to take apart and continue to play with later!

Clay Creations

Let your imagination run wild! Children always love pushing, squeezing, and blending clay! Push in shells, beads, gems and other fun pieces and take home your masterpiece! Children will take home their Clay Creations to air dry. Please note: this project uses a grey-colored firing clay body that will harden to a dry-mud like state.

Sensory Exploration: Kinetic Sand Trays OR Water Beads

The perfect station for younger kids, choose from four Kinetic Sand Trays or four bins of Water Beads and watch your kiddos enjoy a sensory experience with toys, scoops, trucks, and more. This table is always our biggest hit with the youngest Tinkerers!
